We invite you to send in your papers for Translation Forum Russia 2019.
Translation Forum Russia is the largest annual translation and localization conference in Europe.
The key topic of TFR 2019 is TFR#10yearschallenge because it crowns a ten year period in the development of Russian translation industry.
The program, as usual, will be broken down in four tracks. It will include topics of interest for all categories of our participants: freelancers, corporate translators and interpreters, translation companies, higher schools and continuous training courses, professional associations, providers and users of translation tools. This year, the Forum as a central meeting point and discussion platform of the Russian translation industry held for the tenth time, will draw up the results of its development in the last decade.
FOR FREELANCES, as in previous years, we offer many useful things:
– Legal and financial issues of organizing an own “micro-business”;
